    Default Bluej problem with adding an object from one class to another.

    Bluej problem with adding object from another class to a different class?
    Hi there i am trying to create a fish tank which has fish and a fish feeder, i have created methods and objects for the fish and the fish feeder. But now i am having trouble trying to create a field in the tank class to store the fish feeder object.

    here is the code from the tank class where i am having trouble creating the field for the feeder and also creating code for adding and removing a feeder:

     
     
    public class Tank
    {
    private Fish myFish;
    private boolean full;
    private FishFeeder newFishFeeder;
     
    /**
    * Constructor for objects of class Tank
    */
    public Tank()
    {
    full = false;
    myFish = null; 
    newFishFeeder = null;
    }
     
    /**
    * Add a feeder to the tank
    */
     
    public void addFeeder(FishFeeder feeder)
    {
    if(!full)
    { 
    newFishFeeder = feeder;
    full = true;
    } 
    else
    {
     
    System.out.println("Sorry there is no room in the tank for another feeder");
    }
    }
     
    /**
    * Add a fish to the Tank.
    * @param fish, the fish to the tank
    */ 
    public void addFish(Fish fish)
    {
    // Can only have one fish
    if(!full)
    {
    myFish = fish; 
    full = true;
    }
    else
    {
    System.out.println("Sorry there is no room in the tank. It is already occupied and the resident fish will not share. ");
    } 
    }
     
    /**
    * Remove the fish - e.g. if it has died.
    */ 
    public void removeFish()
    {
    // Can only remove if there is a fish there
    if(full)
    {
    myFish = null;
    full = false;
    }
    }

    Please explain what "adding" a feeder means
    Also what "removing" a feeder means
