They paired up and are were pretty inseperable. They used to swim incessantly together. Now, only one is out at a time. The other is always hiding under a rock. They dug out their little den and the one is ALWAYS under the rock. Is there an explanation to this behavior

Maybe they have un-paired?

well. if you look at when a pistol shrimp pairs with another pistol shrimp, they do the same thing. also when a pistol pairs with a goby, same thing. one stands guard and one stays in the home.

They have laid eggs and are taking turns guarding the brood comes to mind based on what you are describing.

That is possible.
