So from this I read your cories hide all the time and you'd like to see more of them?
You could try some blue leds as moonlights. I know allot sw people do this and some fw people as well. I would think that maybe then you could watch your cories at night. Maybe
Other then that, I don't know if light really is that much of an issue for them to come out. If you think you have allot of light, maybe get more plants? They will no doubt grow, and it will shade the bottom of your tank. Unless offcourse you are also keeping fish who will uproot the plants
And maybe your cories are hiding from other fish? Any agressive fish that you can think of?

You can rig up some moon lights, and if you lookin the DIY forum there are instructions there.

I have noticed with my cory cats that when there are only 2 or 3 of them they hide, and when the group is larger they come out during the day and cruise around where I can see them. If your group is small and you have the space I'd consider adding to them, unless you just want to observe nocturnal behavior, then ignore this paragraph.

I have 3 and they are always swimming around everywhere even with the light on.
It could be there's a fish harassing them, as Billsgate mentioned. What are the other fish and is the light really bright?

I have 4 now, (I know I need to update my sig) and I noticed the older they get, the less active they become. The little babies are out all the time, the middle one is out now and again, and the old one stays in his hiding spot all day and only comes out at feeding time. I am hoping once the babies get bigger they will hang out together more.
