filter intake

Does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent the intake tube of my Fluval canister from constantly pulling in plants, and loose leaves? The plants grow so quickly that they have taken over the entire tank and there isn't room anywhere to put the intake where it will not be smack dab in the middle of plants. I tried adding a powerhead for extra water circulation as the top of my water is stagnant and has developed a green film, but the powerhead also gets clogged within a matter of a day or two, and there appears no way to put a prefilter on it. It's a pro-3 by Hagen.
