PHP Object-Oriented PHP Basics Building the Recipe Controlling the Class

Hung up on challenge task 3 - Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing

I create the Fish object as follows:

$bass = new Fish("Largemouth Bass", "Excellent", "22 pounds 5 ounces");

When I check my work I get the following: "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing"

I did not make any changes to the code for task 1 or 2. Please help me understand what I am missing.

Thanks! Steve


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;

  $bass = new Fish("Largemouth Bass", "Excellent", "22 pounds 5 ounces");

Your creation of the Fish object is perfectly fine - the issue is that you're creating it from inside the Fish class. Move that line outside the Fish class and the challenge will pass.
