Garden hoses are fine to use. The only potential negative is if/when water remains in the hose and it's warm, unwanted bacteria (and not the beneficial kind) can develop - although this may not present a problem in the fish tank, you certainly wouldn't want to drink it!!! Suffice it to say, better to keep the hose drained and out of the sun. Otherwise, flush really well before use.
footnote: as a youngster we played outside in summer all day and drank from the garden hose. We rode bikes without helmets and rode in cars without seat belts. I'm in my 60's now - it's a miracle!!! LOL
