I have seen shrimp do fine in unfiltered tanks. Unlike fish shrimp do not produce much waste. Over feeding would cause more of a problem without a filter though. I would imagine doing small water changes very very often would be the key. Instead of waiting for it to get nasty and doing a large water change. Especially while the dirt is settling in.

The plants act as your filter. This is why bowls like this are perfect for shrimp. Just let your plants fill in some then add your shrimp.
