How do you create an object named "bluegill" that is an instance of our Fish class?

I seem to have run into a brick wall when it comes to figuring out what to do with this problem. Any angle that I'm missing?

class Fish {
  $bluegill = new Fish();

You're close! You just need to move your object outside of the class definition, and you'll be good to go!
