the correct answer is "we don't know". There is no hint of a fish other than in the question, so, you can assume the German owns a fish, because he is the only one left after going through all the hints, but the fact is he might own a cow or anything else.

It's actually a yak, not a cow (they do look similar from a distance :-). The German likes to dress it up and put make-up on it. There are some videos somewhere...
