Chiller/how to make it work?

Hi guys.
I'm new around here, and yeap, I have a question.
I Bought a Chiller and I don't know much about it.
The instructions are not clear for me. If somebody has this kind of chiller and know how to make it run I'll apreciate the info.
It is a

Aqua Euro USA Aquarium Nano Chiller CL-85 for 12g

Do I need a pump to make the water circle in the chiller?!
I connected to my aquarium expecting to see the water flows but nothing happened. Thanks!

Yes, most chillers need a small pump to move the water. If the pump is too large the chillers efficiency will be reduced.

I found a description that says "Recommended Pump size (not included): 80 – 160 gph"
