Another Riddle

Okay... I also cannot tahan. Let's start with a simple riddle. ;)

There are 5 houses in 5 different colors in a row. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. The 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage. Other facts:

1. The Brit lives in the red house.
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
3. The Dane drinks tea.
4. The green house is on the immediate left of the white house.
5. The green house`s owner drinks coffee.
6. The owner who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
8. The owner living in the center house drinks milk.
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house.
10. The owner who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
11. The owner who keeps the horse lives next to the one who smokes Dunhill.
12. The owner who smokes Bluemasters drinks beer.
13. The German smokes Prince.
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
15. The owner who smokes Blends lives next to the one who drinks water.

The question is : WHO OWNS THE FISH?

----------------------------------
I'll be giving hints from time to time. First person with the correct answer (you have to name the owner, colour of his house, what he drinks, what he smokes and his pet) will get a kiss from Sanjiv. ;)

Sigh... So low meh, your IQ. Leng has already solved it.

Hint 1: The key are the houses. Start there. Two of the house positions are known already. Play with the other three. Of the three, you already know the relative positions of two of the houses. Thus, there are only two possibilities. Come on people! Prove to me that ERS people are not slow...
