Yea, it'll work fine, tad pricy for "dirt".
I think with leonardite, peat, mulm, Flourite/onyx, flora base, soil, Turface etc, folks should have plenty of mess to play with.

FYI, ALL aquatic substrates will tend towards neutral pH's over time.
The issue is controlled via bacterial reduction rather than a chemical process over time(eg over a month or so or longer).
The more OM in there, and being added from above, the more acidic and the longer the substrate will remain as such but adding O2 rich roots will remove most of that after some time and quickly break down the OM.
