Default First brew; Mold ring on neck of secondary.

As I said this is my first brew, but I have been researching like mad in order to prevent any potential mishaps.

Nonetheless, I've got a problem.

Yesterday, I transferred the brew after a week in my plastic primary to the glass carboy secondary. This morning I noticed a ring of what appears to be mold on the inside of the neck of the carboy, right below the bottom of the stopper. I don't see it anywhere else in the secondary; the brew looks good.

I am going to transfer it to another sanitized carboy, but don't want the same thing to happen again. I read somewhere that mold could be due to airborne mold in my house. How do I find out if that's the case, and if it is just don't use a secondary?

Any suggestions on what I did wrong? Is the brew spoiled?

Appreciate any input

Scratch that. I freaked out too early. Figured it out.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure that's required on the first brew.
