Problem while creating object

The object creation statement is giving an error. The code seems to be fine. Please justify.


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 and 5 ounces");

Your code is correct except the record should be "22 pounds 5 ounces". You have "22 pounds and 5 ounces".

Yeah, just drop the 'and' :)
