    I would assume the yellow powder (which I think is normally little balls) would be your sulphur beads for your nitrate reactor.

    The Stones and charcoal sounds like Tunze Carbophos, the brown balls could be Seachem Phosguard which is exhausted, or it may be another type of phos remover, I can't recall if any other brands make it in a ball form.

    But to be 100% we definitely need some photo's. there are so many different brands out there.
