    public $common_name;
    public $flavor;
    public $record_weight;
    public function getInfo() {
      echo "A " . $this->common_name . " is an " . $this->flavor . " flavored fish. The world record weight is " . $this->record_weight . ".";
    }
}

$bass = new Fish();
$bass->common_name = "Largemouth Bass";

Hi Tautvydas, I think you forgot to 'return' string in your getInfo() method.

return "A " . $this->common_name . " is an " . $this->flavor . " flavored fish. The world record weight is " . $this->record_weight . ".";
