My new pond has gone murky. It has oxygenating plants and 6 fish. I have read that ponds with gravel will clear. My question is when please?

Depends on what you have in your pond to filter it and so on. Need more info on what your pond is like. Maybe some photo's also.

Hello and welcome!

There is no one correct answer. We need to know more about your pond: how big is it, does it have a filter, what kind of fish are they, etc?

Too general of a question.
Where is the gravel?

My favorite answer ever!

While @brokensword was being funny, it really illustrates the point that no one really knows. Every pond is so different. Gravel in and of itself won't clear a murky pond. It depends why it's murky, if the cause of the murk has stopped (ie, do you have dirt getting in the pond somehow), do you have plants in the pond, and many other factors.
