Mbuna are rock dwelling fish and they are going to hang around cover if it is available, it's just what they do. The more you are around them, the more comfortable they will become and you will see them more often.
15 fish of the size Labs get to is good for a 55 gallon tank; I would not add more.

You could do 8 rusties with the labs. More fish will bring them out of hiding.
