That looks like waving hand anthelia.

It looks awesome!
i guess my main question would be. is he limited on growth because the rock hes on is pretty small? should i move it next to another rock so it grows onto that? im pretty new to saltwater and just wanna make sure it keeps growing so i can move it to my 140 gal

What does it look like under your blues or actinct lights?
Any highlights or is it just the fleshy pink?

If you want it to takeover your tank, then move it to a bigger rock, but I would just leave it on that rock, unless you really like it.

Waving hand anthellia, unsure if it grows across rocks though I'd listen to other people about that
Moving to a bigger rock will not change its growth. I had lots of it and was giving it away. It spreads on its own regardless of rock.

Very top is an example of it creeping across the tank
