I'm not sure if they're more active, but just remember that typically scorpions are active during the nighttime.
If you want to see activity, keep a group of these adults together and keep the temperature ranging in the 80s.
That will "up" the activity rate.
These scorpions enjoy burrowing as well, so it's natural for them to be hidden at times.
I'm planning on getting a group of these guys myself.

Pandinus Cavimanus is pretty much a non-communal sp which is very, very aggressive.

Well, I'm going from my personal experience and general experiences that I know of from others who have kept this sp.

Its probably ok to keep more than one if you have a very large tank and loads of hides because they probably wouldn't come into contact with each other.

I would just go with the emps if you want a communal setup.
The P. cavimanus are less communal, it appears, and don't appear to be any more active than emps anyways.

I will only be getting the one so communal types arent a problem, I just want one which I might see every night or at least 3 4 times a week come nighttime lol

An active scorp is Hadrurus Arizonensis (desert hairy), they absolutely love to burrow, and so spend the majority of their time doing it.

im my experiance: Hadrurus Arizonensis.....active yes, visible, no. mine has spent the last 2 months digging and making burrows and tunnels, but only comes to the surface when one of his tunnels collapses, he doesnt even come up to eat, he waits for the crick to go into the tunnel to catch it.

Nighttime activity you should be able to get from asian forest scorpions, for sure. Mine are out and about a lot. Just make sure the humidity is high and the temperature is high too--around 85 is good.
My emps wander around at night too. It's good that you're only doing your viewing at night, because you're not going to get much activity at all during the daytime. This is why I suggested getting more than one, the better the chances of viewing.

Im going to stick with the one, I was going to get an asian forest a while back, are they classed as giant forest scorpion? that brings me onto heating/lighting I thought about using a heat mat on the side obviously however when I want to view, using a red heat bulb and turning off the heat mat so the tank doesnt overheat, would this be ok I have seen a 40w bulb which I think would be best suited?

For the tank I saw in your pics, I'd go for at least a 50-60W
For a 10 gallon I have, I'm using a 75 watt bulb (probably could do with a 60W)

Ok so I went to my local reptile place and they cannot get hold of any scorps atm so may have to wait a few eeks however I have just finished getting sand out of the tank, it still has some hard on algae on the glass from when it was a fish tank months ago, any ideas how to get this off easily? Also I'm going to buy some reptile disinfectant will this be ok for a scorpions tank? Ill take some pics of latest tank probably tomorrow

I wouldn't use any reptile disinfectant, that could be bad for your scorp.

I"m sure if you google how to get the algae off there'd be a lot of sources. I don't anything about removing algae lol
