Yeah I have used it in my tanks. Have changed it for a different sand now. Simply due to the color. It wont cloud the water bad as long as you rinse in a bucket outside first really good before you add it to your tank. The more you rinse it the less dust will get into your tank and cloud the water. It might still some but not bad and they will settle usually in a day or two.
As for becoming really hard in the water mine never did but I have always had Malaysian trumpet snails to aerate the substrate.
