It's perfectly safe for freshwater fish, but the color isn't bleach white. I'd say it's the same color as the average sand you'd find at a beach.

Yes. I actually have a mixture in one of my tanks consisting of CaribSea Aragonite sand (I have this on the bottom) and Plant Substrate (I have this layered on top of the sand). My plants and fish seem to do just fine with the mixture and it looks really good in the aquarium.

Yep, I use it in my two betta tanks and it's wonderful! The bag itself also says it's safe for freshwater, it's just in slightly smaller print :)
