Yes, I turn mine off for the reasons Zimmanski mentioned. I think you'll find that quite a few people do this. Either or works fine. It's what works best for your tank. If the food is just being swished around and pushed to the bottom by a stronger filter, it's a good idea, I think, to turn it off for feeds.
