Don't turn off your undergravel filter, Do not.  When you turn off your
undergravel, all that nice bacteria dies due to the lack of fresh oxygenated
water reaching it.  This may 'crash' your whole tank.  If you are using the
airstone and pump method on the undergravel, think about switching to
powerheads (which create currents but no massive bubbling).
