I have a fry tank that got stricken with ick. I am gonna empty it out and clean it and was wondering if I just fill it with hot water if that will kill of the ick or if there is a better way?

If I do the hot water will that kill the bacteria in my sponge filter as well as the ick?

Thanks in advance, Ben

Letting them dry out will kill the ich, or just not having fish in it will also kill the ich. You can rinse the tank and media with a small amount of bleach if you want extra insurance, but ich will not survive without a host.
