Einstein = German and since there's really nothing leading to owning a fish, there you go.

Nobody owns the fish. The fish owns them.

Nope, there is definitely a way to solve it. Cause I just wasted a good 10 minutes before reading the first guys reply. And to that other dude just use your fingers, you only have to count the houses, everything else you can just remember in your head. Also, I'm pretty sure more than 2% of the population would get this.

This should be where that ugly block face is.

Yeah my grade 10 math teacher gave me this same question and solved it first try, took me a bit though. If i remember it was the middle house. I love doing stuff like this. If you got anything more like this bring it on.
And now for something completely different

You are not a super genius if you solve this, just because you answered a riddle on a forum page does not make you the next Einstein.
