Cloudy Water

There's cloudy water in my tank. I think its the gravel because i probably didn't wash it well but there's already fish in it. What to do. Its a 1 g bowl(can everyone please stop saying its too small. I know it is.)

Keep doing water changes until it clears.

Yep, keep them up. Also if the tank is new it could also be a bacterial bloom. Again, just keep up with WC's.

You said it's a bowl, I'm assuming it doesn't have filtration? This is most likely the issue. Without the filter your bowl can't cycle and you are most likely dealing with a bacterial bloom. Though it's been up for a month your bowl is sort of in a state of permanent newness if that makes sense. It can't cycle so there is a lot of bouncing around in levels making it more prone to bacterial blooms
