Conservation: Caprichromis liemi is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2006). Caprichromis liemi is a rather rare cichlid but since it occurs all over the lake it is indeed least threatened in its existence.
