The longiceps has the smallest teeth and mouth of all of the Rhamprochromis. A large, elongate piscivore designed to hunt down their prey (usipa) swiftly, adult males form schools in deep open water. Brooding females migrate to vegetated shallows and are found there with juveniles. Males have a blue-green sheen on their backs and bright yellow ventral and anal fins. The female's fins are colorless. In the aquarium adults have a horizontal line that is lacking in the wild.
