MH Hood - Question about adding reflectors

I just bought a used 3x175w MH hood. It needs a little tlc but I got it at a good price. One thing is that it has 3 mogul sockets but a white background...no reflectors at all. I'd like to add reflectors but I noticed everywhere I look the reflectors have the sockets included. Isn't there somewhere I can go to buy and add JUST the reflector somehow?

It should be pointed out that I'm using this light for a system that will mainly be fish only...I only grabbed it because I love the shimmer look of MH and like I said, it was a great price. So, even low end reflectors should do me fine. I just feel like I should have SOMETHING up there. I must be losing a lot of light.
