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!

Agreed.. I see reflectors as being an option extra rather than a necessity.. Not used one myself, although some do..

Personal choice I guess...
Kids or Reptiles.. kids or Reptiles...?? Damn.. I'll miss those kids....
