It's not straightforward, but it's certainly possible. Your index group will
contain specific water molecules, and so those water molecules must appear as
their own group listed in the [molecules] directive. That requires a unique
[moleculetype] name; even though they're just water molecules, genion must
consider them differently. So if you have some water molecules called "My_SOL"
then copy spc.itp to my_spc.itp and rename the [moleculetype] as My_SOL. Then
[ molecules ]
SOL (Total water - X)
