Yes it is a ficus, I think it is a Ficus benjamina. Looks like you have some good branching to work with.

thats what i thought, but i have a benjamin fig I'm working on, but the leaves are about 2-3x bigger

roelex14,

I have a few F. benjamina 'Mini Lucie' which looks like it could also be in the running.

There are several dwarf cultivars. Too Little like you have already hear, Kiki, and Riyan. If it is real brittle it is probabley Riyan.
