Does anyone know what causes the white milky coloration that appears to kill Ghost shrimp?

I have some grass shrimp (ghost shrimp) in my community tank. They start to turn white every once in a while. Then in a couple days I see a empty shrimp skeleton floating around. Initially I thought they died and someone ate them. But then I figured out it is because they are molting (shedding exo-skeleton) to grow a new one. When I see the skeleton floating around, if I look hard enough, I can usually see the shrimp hiding in a spot to stay safe until he is protected again. Hopefully this answers your question.
