Ammonia is poison. You should never have detectable ammonia. What is it coming from?

Water changes with what, tap water? Ammonia could simply be in your tap water...

Then it sounds like this tank wasn't cycled. A properly cycled can't shouldn't have any readings of ammonia or nitrite unless there is a huge die off in the system.

They didn't die for no reason and those reasons are pretty limited. If it was as quickly as you say, it was ammonia. If it was slower and degrade over time it could be lack of lighting, flow, and several other things.
