em should work, but for md in solution i would addsome counter ions

genion should solve this problem, replace 2 sol against Cl- or any other ion 
you want.

genion -s topol.tpr -n index.ndx -o out.gro -nname Cl -nn 2

Than you have to change your top file manuelly

in the bottom you got something like

FE				6
SOL			1000

than after

SOL			998
Cl				2

If you need t-couple you need also to add Cl than there.
