Dirted, low tech nano tank?

Has anyone ever successfully managed to set up a dirted nano (~5gallons) tech that has no tech (no filter, no heater, etc.) and minimal maintenance other than water changes? I'm basing this post based on this youtube video I found:

The descriptions states that it's a dirted tank with no tech, CO2 or ferts used, and the only maintenance is water changes. Based on the video it's a pretty nice looking tank! Thought I'd see if anyone else has done something similar with success before I perhaps tackle this myself.

I usually agree with geisterwald, but here I must strongly object! Lose the heater. It takes up so much room in that tiny tank. There are plenty of non-tropical fish you can keep. Maybe something local to your area? In the very least you could throw in some ghost shrimp.
