class Fish { public $common_name; public $flavor; public $record_weight;

function __construct($name, $flavor, $record){ $this->common_name = $name; $this->flavor = $flavor; $this->record_weight = $record; } } ?>

First the class curly brace needs to wrap the function the construct function needs to be inside the class yours is outside the next thing you need to name the function __Fish to __construct. try running the code again.

you need to create the constructor inside of the class and also name the constructor as __construct.

Step by Step create public properties public $common_name; public $flavor; public $record_weight; then create a constructor function inside the class curly braces like so function __construct ($name,$flavor,$record)


Sure thing :).
