Aquarium Plenum

I was watching some of Dr. Kevin Novak's YouTubes about "plenums" in the aquarium. It uses an under gravel filter between the substrate and the bottom glass. Now the UGF does't run like normal, or if it is, it only moves a couple of gallons a day. The idea is to 'maybe' allow anoxic regions, but not anaerobic regions. (Even using landscape fabric on top of the UGF for sand).
The idea is to better imitate a more natural substrate as natural substrates are not sealed after a few inches like an aquarium is.
Anybody tried it?
Any thoughts?
