Is anyone keeping a journal of their progress on here. This is something I would really like to follow and maybe eventually try in the future.

Yep ... I've also heard it done this way. From what I know, it's usually smaller bio load fish with tons of plants, best to have soil substrate ... both act as your filtration. Unless your using power heads for current, your gas exchange is limited to the tanks footprint and whatever O2 the plants give during photosynthesis.

With no filter, and water changes four times a year?

In nature, there's a natural filtering system - water running over rocks, through vegetation, etc. And rainfall doesn't occur on a quarterly schedule. Fish can swim out of bad water conditions into good ones.

I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around that.

Yes. It's basically a giant Walstad Method aquarium she wants. It's really not out of the realm of reality. I made one (albeit 1/75th the size ) and it does work very well. It's also the same principles that give Rivercats her awesome growth in her 220g. Although Rivercats obviously takes much better care than this woman would
