Dry heat sterilizers tend to damage equipment and in most cases fail to completely kill bacterial and spore growth on the instruments .

What is the difference between a cold sterilizer and an autoclave?
A cold sterilizer uses various chemicals at room temperature that kill bacteria and spores. An autoclave is a pressure cooker of sorts, and uses hot steam under extreme pressure to kill bacteria and spores. An autoclave is much faster and is considered the state of the art for sterilization. Unfortunately, some materials such as plastics cannot be autoclaved because they would be destroyed or melted in the process. These items are sterilized using cold sterile chemicals.
Fish tank sterilization will or will not help ick in fish?
If you're referring to running a sterilizer, it won't help a fish that already has ick. But a sterilizer is cheap insurance and will help prevent future outbreaks of ick and other diseases. If you're referring to cleaning out a tank with bleach and then reassembling it, this will not help a fish that already has ick. But if your fish have already died then you MUST sterilize the tank before adding other fish. The ick can remain the water and re-infect new fish.
