Colleen and I can find room for you.  What type of coras, SPS, LPS, Softies?  How big are the anemones?  No need to pay us, that's what the club is here for!  :-)  We had to have someone babysit a few of ours when we moved out of our last house into the rental while we were building.  We also had to borrow an entire tank when our first 75 gallon acrylic spurng a leak.  Being able to help someone else would make us happy.

Keep us posted on when you are getting to town.  We are in north Richland (Horn Rapids - we'll get you directions when time gets closer), my cell is 509-366-3450, Colleen's is 366-9693 if you need to contact us via phone.

Very cool, we have MH on everything, so we'll be able to give them a good place to stay.  Our clowns may enjoy having an anemone temporarily too.  :-p

How long could we hold them?  Until you are ready.  No worries.  I'm sure we'll be able to give things a good place to stay until you are settled.  How soon will you be headed this way?  When do you expect to be in town?

I'll PM you with directions to our place, and you have our cell numbers below.

Good luck with the trip!

OK, sounds fine.  I'll get the frag system re-plumbed this Sunday so I can have it up and going for a few days before you get to town.
