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?
