I don't recall anyone mentioning this, but for the moment your fish are kept somewhat safe by the low ph, it renders the ammonia into ammonium which is less toxic.

I would increase the amount of water you change to 50%, if not 75%, just to get more ammonia out of the water. If you're still using buckets I can understand this may be difficult, I recommend investing in either a Python water changer, or using a long piece of tubing to drain water and then attach it to the sink (with adapters, found mine at a local hardware store) to fill the tank. It makes PWCs much quicker.

EDIT: Jeff mentions a good point. I would only feed a small bit once a week, until ammonia is down to 0. This won't hurt the fish and will slow down the buildup of ammonia.
