Top Filter query

I purchased for my child a 50 Litre fish tank. We installed the tank. Added water. Installed the top filter. It has been running for 2 days. Then today when throwing out the rubbish I noticed the carton for the filter said that it said 5 gallon tank. 5 gallon converts to 19 litres.
Am I wrong that this is not suitable? Want to be sure before I go back to the fish shop tomorrow.
Thanks in advance.

Hard to say. What tank did you want? If you wanted a 50 liter you should get what you paid for. Totally up to you what you should do.

Did you buy it all together as a starter kit?

The filter is definitely too small for your tank, you need one for 15g or larger depending on what fish you are going to be adding in.
