All a reflector does is direct the light to a specific place and away from another (ie will point it downwards and stop it from going up). It could be seen that there could be a small amount of 'waisted light' but in my experience I would say that it wouldn't make that much difference for the breadies if you have one or not providing that you had the correct uv bulb ie repti glo 10 or equivilent.

I have 2 vivs set up for beardies and neither of them have reflectors and all animals are happy and healthly.

Good luck with the new set up!
