Are they more resistant and resilient compared to wild caught for use in display aquariums, if so does any one have a link to something on this.

Thank you.

I don't think resilient or stronger is the proper point of view. Since they have never had to go through capture and transport and not exposed to serious wild pathogens, they tend to do better in tank life and eat all sorts of prepared foods since it is pretty much all they have eaten for their entire lives.
