So I wanted to add more coral and get a clean up crew. I got all the clean up crew, more coral, But I added more live rock without thinking anything of it. Now there’s a bunch of bubbles I’m assuming micro bubbles. Will this affect my tank and all the fish? What should I do, should I do a water change? Also the pet store I buy these thing don’t give me much info on the coral. Could you guys identify them and let me know what I need to do to take care of them.

The air might just be coming out of your rock. Are you sure your powerhead isn’t sucking air from the surface though? I wouldn’t worry too much about it affecting health of the tank though. For your corals I see two Green Star Polyps (GSP) some kind of mushroom maybe and I’m not sure of the third tentacle thing.

Not that big of a deal. Some people like to generate micro bubbles to “clean” their acros. See: Bubble Scrubbing.

The rock was dry and it’s been sitting out for awhile at the pet store.

If the rock had some organic in there left to rot, I would remove it and let it basically rot in a separate container of water.

Or you could remove it, bleach it to nuke any material breaking down in there, rinse several times, air out, use dechlorinatir and you’re good.

If nothing was dead inside to rot, you should be fine

Man, I'm in the camp of I don't put any kind of dry rock in my tank with any livestock, unless it's sat in a bucket for weeks or months or in my tank for weeks or months before introduction of anything.

I'd only put mature liverock in my tank if already stocked with anything.
