    Cool Bluej fish project

    I have three assignments using bluej program im a learner at it i have done he first two assignment but the last one is causing me grief to no better end i have hopefully attached the file with this message.

    The question i need to know is

    This in only in the Tank Class

    Task A
    1 i can only at the moment have one fish in the tank i need to increase the amount of fish in the tank.
    2 be able to ad a fish to the Tank.
    3 Remove a fish from the Tank.
    4 Have a method to get the population of the Tank.

    Task B
    1 In my getFish method i Need to change method so that it returns a fish based on an index passed in.
    2 In my hasFish method i need method to return true value if is a fish in the tank.
    3 In my printTank method in this method, change the method so that it prints out the number of fish in the tank and print out the list of the fish in the tank.
    4 In my feed method in this method the fish that gets fed is determined randomly.

    best way to tackle it.
    Read the error message, find the API doc for the exception(they are all classes), post the full text of the error message here and ask about it.

    It takes time to get familiar with the common errors.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
