Amano shrimp keep dying
So I set up my tank a couple of months ago and whenever I add amano shrimp to my tank, they all die one by one. I have 4 amano shrimp, 10 neon tetras, 3 black neon tetras and 6 fire belly newts. Everyone seems to get along fine but every few days I wake up to a dead shrimp. They are always a cloudy white or a little pink and before they die I see them laying on their side as if they were molting but still kicking their feet. My ph is 6.8, copper 0 ppm, ammonia 0 ppm, nitrates 0 ppm and nitrites 30 ppm. What could be killing them?
Ps-The shrimp that are going to die usually turn a transparent shade of blue a few days before
