"The Artisan Bee is a perfectionist that continually builds new hives - fortunately, its abandoned hives are perfect for coral larvae to attach onto and grow."

The Artisan Bee is a Tier 2 Social Bee species found naturally in the Topaz Coral Reef.

They are the third of the three natural coral species found across the three reefs, along with the Coral Bee and the Custodian Bee.
