I use fluorite black on most of my tanks. I did light rinsing on my first time--didn't do that much.
Since then, I don't rinse anything, I find that the really fine particles might be important for the plants to get established.
Sure it gets really cloudy, but it settles down in a couple of days with some a filter dedicated with filter floss set on maximum pump power.
