Kevin Novak: Anoxic Filtration

Has anyone on the forums tried using anoxic filtration as proposed by Dr. Kevin Novak? He has apparently developed a substitute for the more commonly used bio filtration model that not only removes Ammonia and Nitrite but also Nitrate, which lowers the need for water changes.

If you look at his youtube videos, you can see that he is keeping discus in a planted aquarium, which he claims he has only topped off without performing major water changes for months. Please see below for a video of his on youtube.

Kevin apparently developed this filtration for Koi ponds originally.

Has anyone had success with this method of filtration?

Kevin also proposes with the use of such a filtration system not fertilizing with Nitrogen based fertilizers and phosphates. He only adds iron and potassium. From the looks of his plants this seems to be working for him.
Any input regarding this method would be great.
