Copadichromis are utaka, haps that feed on zooplankton. Feeding near rocks but in the water column minimizes competition, but increases vulnerability to predators. Spawning occurs throughout the year. Fry are released among plants or along rocky shorelines and form large shoals, becoming prey for other fish. C. likomae masinje builds a sand castle bower or defends a flat rock covered in fine sand. Male is blue with yellow fins. The top half of the body is lighter. Female has one spot on the caudal peduncle and a yellow anal fin.
