yes, it is "supposed" to be fully submerged. mine is completly under water and about 6" of chord is submerged too. just make sure it is a fully sunmersible powerhead, i've never herd of a non-submersible powerhead, but hey, they might be out there

You never mentioned what your planning to attatch to the other end... the intake part. You can just submerge your powerhead in the tank, no problem, but you'll need a prefilter on the other end (butt part) so that your fish doesnt get sucked up. And damn.. does an 802 suck!!!

I have an Aquaclear 802 and have never had a problem with my fish even almost getting sucked in. It IS a 5-6" fish so yeah, take that into consideration. If you have small fish, then you will want a prefilter. I also have my powerhead sitting about 4" from the bottom and i have sand. I have no problems with sand getting sucked up either, so you can kind of see that suction isnt really a problem in my case.
