[APD] using a powerhead for water movement

  I have a 10 gal tank with a aquaclear mini for filtration, no UGF,
sand substrate and a few guppy fry.  I would like to add a powerhead to
move some water.   Is there some type of foam prefilter that will fit
over the intake to avoid sucking up the fish or sand???   With the
aquaclear mini I found that i have to cover the intake with foam to keep
the fry from getting sucked up... I just made a slit in an extra foam
pad and attached it to the intake with an elastic.... very, very ugly!!!
I would also like to replace this.    
  Any advice on size and placement of the power head to both get a good
flow and to conceal it. 
   I was thinking of a small aquaclear powerhead.. it does accept the
quick filter, but I don't feel that I need the extra filtration or
another item in this small tank.    Any links to a picture of this setup
would be nice....
