I put in a cube of bloodworm and a little chunk of it got sucked into my 802 powerhead. Do I have to take it out, open it up, and clean it or can I put it in reverse flow and have the powerhead spit it out? Holler at me because I want to keep my baby p's water as clean as possible!!!

next time turn it off or hook it up to a UGF system to avoid this... you can easily take it out and clean it... it only takes two seconds to do just about :

Just clean it and next time turn off your powerhead while feeding as SC said!

Why dont you attatch a prefilter to the bottom end of the powerhead. Another alternative is an intake tube from a canister and attatched to the bottom of the powerhead.

I have one for my 402. Same one fits the 802. Although, I tood the prefilter out, and just use the plastic gaurd to stop bigger items from getting sucked into it.

If all else fail and you wanna go ghetto. You can always use a screen sold most in pipe shops.

some type of screening would work great if not attached to a UGF system... and you can always get a tube and extend it down towards into the gravel

Another ghetto alternative is using panty hose...
