High nitrite and ammonia in tank?

Hey /an/, I am a fairly new fish owner and have been having some problems with my tank, specifically the nitrite and ammonia being too high. When I first set up and cycled the tank, the water was fine, but it has been over a month and now it has been having consistent problems. I've changed the water 3x now (80% the first time, about 20% the second, and closer to 50 the third, all with neutralized tap water with some "good bacteria"), and each time only with slightly better results. I have also changed the filter recently, and have cutback feeding from twice to just once a day.
Does anyone have any tips / something else for me to try? The people at the pet store I go to basically just tell me to change the water every time, but obviously that isn't working. The most recent test they recommend I try using distilled water as opposed to tap. Thoughts on this? Thanks a lot /an/

So a couple of hours ago I've encountered this grasshopper. The thing was away from any source of food and was missing a leg, so I had compassion and brought it home.
The thing is, the creature is about 15cm (6.5 inches) long, fully adult, probably at the end of its lifespan. Petting a single, adult grasshopper makes no sense to me, but my conscience is holding me back. Should I bring it outside and simply let the 15°C temperature enuthanasize it?

HAMMOND, La. - A firestorm spread across Facebook this morning as followers of a Northshore animal organization learned about a video post showing a dog fight.
Now authorities are asking the public to help them find out who was involved in the fight, and the video of it.
"It's either being awful brave or awful stupid,” said Randy Segall, who runs the Tangi Humane Society. “I hate to use that word, but to put something like that on your Facebook page, that's really unreal."
The video was posted Monday, by a man named Kendrick Drummond, whose profile says he’s from Amite, but lives in Lafayette. Drummond even commented on the video saying he’d never be caught.
The Tangi Humane Society spread the video across social media, offering a reward for information about where and when the fight took place, as well as all the people involved with the video.
Now, authorities in Lafayette Parish and Animal Control in Tangipahoa Parish are looking for the same thing.
“We're identifying the players. I think there's one recognizable face in the video, so we're attempting to confirm that identity," said Capt. Kip Judice with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office.
"At least if we can get him in for questioning, find out what the real deal is on it," said Segall.
