C. liemi has a unique mouth that is strongly inclined with a broad lower jaw. This mouth comes in handy for stealing eggs and larvae from mouthbrooding females! It also picks Argulus parasites from the throat region of other cichlids. It is hypothesized that its diet primarily consists of these parasites since they are extensively abundant but this remains unclear.

Breeding males congregate in colonies to form a lek, where they built spawning pits against rocks. These pits can measure greater than 3 feet across. Females are then courted en masse. Mouthbrooding females group in large schools and release their fry in the rocky habitat where they can take cover.
