Yeah, I think almost anything covering the intake has the potential to get clogged.

Maybe you can just do it on the upper part, and leave the intake as it is, so that you can periodically take off the covering and rinse it out. As the ferns grow in, they will probably cover the opening in shadows, so once it's darked with biofilm and such, it probably won't really be noticeable.

If you do go with that, let us know how it works (and maybe post pics )
