It has been established for about 10months maybe. yeah i have added a few fish last week, Thanks for the advice i would rather ensure that the guppies in their at this stage survive and are very healthy. How often should i do the water changes with the yellow coloration should i do 15% 2 times in the next week with tests to ensure water conditions are better quality and healthier fish?

The more water changes, the better. I'd do twice or thrice 20-30% water change a week.

FYI, the tannins from the drift wood don't hurt anything - they are just unpleasant to look at. When you get new drift wood, soak if for a couple weeks in a bucket and change the water every couple of days. Also, Lupin, I think a UV sterilizer is a great edition to any tank. It keeps the water free of parasites, algae blooms, and the water is nice and crystal clear.

I just don't find it necessary in a situation where algal blooms and parasites are not the issues.

Yeah I put a peice of mopani driftwood in my tank and had to soak it in a bucket for about 2 weeks. Every day I would change the water in the bucket 2 or 3 times a day so I could monitor when the tannins stopped leaching out so much. I also made sure I had fresh carbon in the filter when I finally put the wood in the tank. After doing all that I have yet to see any yellowish tint to the water.
