Humalite instead of Aquasoil?

Hey guys, wondering what the thoughts are on using Humalite as an aquasoil?

Here are 2 products I found:

Black Earth Mini-Granules (they also have a powder one):

Canadian Humalite International (CHI) Powder:

To me, initially, it looks good. I'm hoping some more knowledgeable can weigh in with their opinion.
One problem so far is where to buy this stuff? I found a website that sells 55lb bags of the Black Earth stuff for $30....but shipping will be $45.

So, can Humalites serve as an aquasoil? They seem to have a neat aesthetic, so are they a viable option?
