Canister as a Vacum

I have an idea..
let me know if you guys or anyone has thought of this before. While vacuming my 80 gal yesterday, I was looking at my Magnum Canister. I detatched it from my tank took off the siphon tube, connected the vacum tube to the canister and started to vacum. It worked wonders and I didnt need to carry any buckets and/or refill the tank.

What do yo guys think???

Do you know you might kill the nitrite-absorbing bacteria inside the canister when they are out of flowing water for like 15 minutes (thus possibly damaging the tank's cycle)?
