I have been following this thread and have noted that you have modified you your original post 5 times in response to questions.
Yes: you are correct that there is something wrong.
At 14 days you should observe a nitrite concentration since you have observed an ammonia concentration.
I am not familiar with you filtration products or test kit which you are utilizing but from the information which you have posted either:
1) the biological filtration in the filtration products is not functioning or
2) the test kit is old and yielding inaccurate results.
From the extent of your diligence I would speculate 1).
It would really help me to help you if you could post a photograph of your aquarium and the filtration products which you are employing.
Please note that IMHO at an ammonia concentration of 1.0 your fish suffering.
