Do you turn off the filter with a pregnant goldfish?

Goldfish can not get pregnant they are egg layers and their eggs are fertilised externally. Never turn filters off on a fish tank unless you are cleaning them. Cycled filters are needed to remove the poisons from the water that the fish create by living/pooing etc in there.
