Cardinals hide behind power head

My Banjii Cardinals and my Pajama Cardinals just hide behind my power head at top of tank , they have been in tank almost 2 months , other fish include 2 mandarins 1 clarkie clown 1 dotty back 1 flame goby 1 chromis other one didn't make the trip in shipping
no one picks on them and they do come out to eat than go back in to hide , how can I get them to come out of hiding and enjoy their new home . they are healthy and have a very big appetite , it's hard to enjoy a nice looking fish when you never see them , anyone have any ideas how to persuade them to come out,
no one picks on anyone everyone seems happy dotty back stays in his cave opening till feeding and don't mess with anyone , clown just loves every one never saw a fish bring food to another before kinda weird lol

37 gal bow front (saltwater)
octopus 150 skimmer
external penguin bio wheel 150 packed with cheato
ETH 200 watt inline heater
3 power heads 500gph
in line UV sterilizer

30 gal (brackish)
bio filter
under-gravel 2 power-heads 250gph

30 gal hex (freshwater)
bio filter
under gravel 2 power heads 170gph

Who ever said keeping fish was easy should have there head examined
It's more like a full time job !!!!
