Most dont... since it's not really important to have a drainage layer like it would be in vivarium setups which receive a lot of waterings to keep humidity and moisture content high. That and the layer needed to separate the balls from the substrate is prone to not being crab proof.

(Not to mention, its very overpriced... a layer of gravel would do the same job and a lot cheaper... even a false bottom using PVC would be cheaper especially in larger tanks.
