Why won't my Oscars, Green Texas Cichlids chase live food!

Although they're juvenile anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5" I thought for sure they'd eat some feeder guppies. It could also be from me feeding them to much. I just know I put feeder guppies and ghost shrimp in there and just looked at them. What could this be? I thought it was instinct!
