Does anyone have any experience with this brand of sand?

I want to do play sand as my aquarium's substrate. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Quikrete Play Sand at Home Depot.
Is it okay for an aquarium?
Thanks!

I believe I have this brand in my 5 gallon- just regular sand, I can't really complain or preach it.

I heard it was kind of dusty. Does it cloud the tank at all?

The beginning- yes. But nothing a good couple rounds of rinsing won't fix. As it is added in the start of the tank it will cloud but it settles. Occasionally while messing around with the tank (after the sand being there for a couple months) it does cloud but it settles fast.

Okay, thanks!
