I'm so sorry that you lost your fish. It's awful not knowing what the cause is, and sometimes with fish no matter how scrupulous and careful you are, things just seem to go wrong.
With that said, test strips are notorious for being inaccurate and giving incorrect readings. Most people prefer to invest in a good liquid test kit. API makes one, which is often the most recommended, and I have it myself at home. I think it's pricier than the test strips, but you do get a hundred or so tests out of them.
Also, I'm not sure if you mentioned it above, but I assume you are using a dechlorinator?
