The filter does more than put oxygen in the water, it is necessary to keep the water relatively clean and to create movement in the water.
Yes, you should take the filter out of the tank because the fry WILL be sucked up the pipe but replace it with a cheap sponge filter which can be bought for only a few dollars. The sponge filters are not as efficient as other filters but it only needs to stay in the tank for about three/four weeks or so until you think the fry are too big to gety sucked up.
