Looks like a ficus. To prevent mold, I would remove those rocks, and water only when dry. Use the "chopstick" method for watering.

alright thank you, is anyone familiar with removing the rocks?
because they really glue them on there and I don't want to damage the lil guy.

Re: beginner bonsai, asking for help.

You may need to use a tool, like a butter knife, or a screwdriver to remove the rocks. Just chip away at them, and remove them, but be careful not to injure yourself. That's how I remove them, and hope that helps.
