dont know why its wrong (PHP OOP Mid course Challange)

I think its not getting the rest of the string in the return of getInfo and i don't know why, already tried use +.

fish.php
<?php

class Fish {
 public $common_name = "deafultName";
 public $flavor = 0;
 public $record_weight = "defaultWeight";


function __construct($name,$flavor,$record){
  $this->common_name = $name;
  $this->flavor = $flavor;
  $this->record_weight = $record;
}
  function getInfo(){
  return "A ". $this->common_name;" is an ". $this->flavor;" flavored fish. The world record weight is ". $this->record_weight;
  }
}
$bass = new Fish("Largemouth Bass","Excellent","22 pounds 5 ounces");
echo $bass->getInfo();
?>

Hello Vinicius Schmidt,

You are very very close to getting it right!

Just two small errors in this line:

<?php
return "A ". $this->common_name;" is an ". $this->flavor;" flavored fish. The world record weight is ". $this->record_weight;
?>

you have added a semi-colon after $this->common_name and $this->flavor. When the php engine reaches the semi-colon that signals the end of the line. Instead replace them with the php concatenation operator the period.

Hope this helps!
