I've been using Akadama without any noticeable mineral stripping for over 2 months now. Though I did notice that it took over a month to cycle the damn tank due to nitrate creep. I was still able to keep livestock in the tanks after the first week, just had to keep doing 20% WCs every week, remineralized back up with MMP every time. Maybe that was the reason why I wasn't noticing any GH fluctuations.
