In that case baby O's are much more cautious than what you might expect. Also we need more info. How long have you had them, how big is the tank, is it cycled, what else is in there, how big are the fish, what else are you feeding them, how often, etc. ?
Welcome to the site..
It will take some time for the oscars to adjust.. They will come around soon.
You will need a big tank which you already know.. They will get big fast within a few months.
I would be setting up that 75 gallon very soon.
