Yes you can. I use providone iodine from walmart. Couple of drops in the acclimation pot. I pour contents of bag into a large bowl. Add the iodine. And then drip acclimate. Turn the flashlight on the specimen while acclimating to look for other signs. I dont use interceptor for the dip because to be effective you have to keep it in for 6 hours otherwise it would be like not using at all. I look for the buggers as well as nudi and aefw eggs. I acclimate over a 1 hour period and then place at bottom tank close to the front where i can use the handy dandy mesoscope to make sure there isnt anything i missed.
