• There are 5 houses that are each a different colour.
• There is a person of a different nationality in each house.
• The 5 owners drink a certain drink. They each smoke a certain brand of cigarettes and also have a certain pet. No owner has the same pet, smokes the same brand of cigarettes nor drinks the same drink.
• The question is. “Who has the fish?”

CLUES

1. The British man lives in the red house.
2. The Swedish man has a dog for a pet.
3. The Danish man drinks tea.
4. The green house is to the left of the white house.
5. The owner of the green house drinks coffee.
6. The person that smokes Pall Mall has a bird.
7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The person that lives in the middle house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The person that smokes Blend, lives next to the one that has a cat.
11. The person that has a horse lives next to the one that smokes Dunhill.
12. The one that smokes Bluemaster drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to a blue house.
15. The person that smokes Blend, has a neighbour that drinks water.

GOOD LUCK!!!
A tough one for me, as I'm a geographical idiot.
But the trend that I'm seein', is they are all European.
So to answer this question, with a guess of reflection,
I would surmise it to say "Some guy far away",
In a house round the corner, or at the end of the 'sac.
And the clues that you use, are to confuse and distract.

A simple graph was useful here
To find out who drinks the beer.
Who owns the fish, his name is Herman
He's a coffee drinker with a heritage of GERMAN

Molly was a brewer's wife, as faithful as the sun,
Brewer Bob, an abusive man, was Molly's mean husband.

Brewer Bob used black clay jugs to measure his brewing water,
and Bob demanded precision during mash and boil and lauter.

One day Bob sent poor Molly to the well across the moor,
"Lower down these jugs, my wife, and bring back exactly four."

Four gallons seemed a simple task, and Molly left with glee,
until she saw the jugs she took held exactly five and three.

5 gallons rich holds one jug, the other 3 gallons poor,
How will Molly return to Bob with exactly four?

The answer to my eye is clear and bright as is the sun.
She fills both jugs just half the way and dumps them in the tun.

Dump three into the five. Refill 3 and dump into the five until the 5 is full (1 left in the 3). Dump out the five. Fill the five with the 1 left in the three, and add three more to the 5.

Die Hard III for the win!

Like this (highlight to see):
5-3=2 Fill the 5, dump into the 3, leaving 2g left in the 5
3-3=0+2=2 Dump the 3, add the 2g to the 3
5-(3-2) = 4 Fill the 5 again, then dump to fill the 3, leaving 4g left in the 5

___________

Looks like 2 answers we have to the one with the fish
Is a single-answered riddle too much to wish?

Molly can't see the fluid - the jugs are black as oil.
Full or empty are the only options for our girl.

[er, I mean wrong , halfway doesn't work with opaque jugs that get lowered into a well. ]

What was the answer to the man who owns the fish?

It looks like there was one other that answered besides me...
