    Hi All

    Will a plastic basket(macro algae) on top of my dsb have any negative effects long term?

    Try and float it above the dsb. You don't want anything resting on your dsb.

    No it is ok. I personally do it and I know of others that do it also. Like @TaahirS said lift it a bit, or just once a week vacuum under the basket.
