If you can't return it, here's a suggestion. I got the white cottony stuff a couple weeks after having it in the tank also. I read that mystery snails (as they are called at petco/petsmart) will eat it, so sure enough, I put one in the tank, and it was all gone within days.
After reading Byron talk about his experiences with it, I did eventually take it out of my tank, because I too didn't want to take chances.
It's up to you. You heard from someone who has had no trouble, but be aware of the fungus. If you can keep a snail or boil/scrub it off each time, perhaps you'll be okay.
