OOP; Properties and Methods; Challenge 4 of 5; New Fish object

Hello,

I'm having some trouble with the codes:

Create a Fish object named $bass with the following data: • name: "Largemouth Bass" • flavor: "Excellent" • record: "22 pounds 5 ounces"

<?php

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


?>

Thanks for any help. I've also tried this:

fish.php
<?php

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"):


?>

Hello,

Please check how you end your object $bass. You used a colon(:) instead of semi-colon(;)

here is the correct one:

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