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. maison is a small species, similar to Otopharynx but identified as Copadichromis because it claims a territory on top of a large rock. Male is light blue. Female has three indistinct spots along her sides.
