Tonite browsing Goodwill,I found these(sorry no pic)large straw capsule things tightly wrapped in mesh. The package said to put them under your ponds waterfall...to remove odors and detritus. It said it could take a month for them to start working so my questions of course are: is this a thing you can really use, what are they called and how do they work and if you can answer those I may have some more...

Sounds like a waterfall filter. Google those and see if that's the idea or not.
