Hi Ahmed, to add public properties to a class you do the following:

<?php

class Fish {

public $common_name;
public $flavor;
public $record_weight;

}

?>

What you are doing is close but you need to declare each property on a separate line, with its own "public" and you need to give the properties a $, much like when you declare a variable.

Hope that helps!!
