I think water changes are really the only way to get rid of ammonia. That and also vacuuming the gravel. A lot of poop and uneaten food can accumulate down in there even if it looks clean, I've been shocked sometimes when I've vacuumed after I've skipped it for a short time.

Are you overstocked? Not enough filtration? Not doing large enough water changes on a weekly basis? If you do a 20% water change but your water parameters are off I'd take that as a sign that the tank needs a larger water change per week.
