As long as it's "hard type", it should be fine. As far as I know, the double red line brand is the most popular "hard type" soil. I cannot speak to the hardness of other brands, but be careful, because Imke on shrimpnow bought some akadama of a different brand, and it dissolved in a matter of weeks into a bed of mud.
I have been using akadama double red line for about 2 months now, and it seems to be fine. No visible breakdown, and no problems with ammonia.
