I don't think they are hybrids.

The reason would be that "Super Red" and the albino ("L144") are both colour forms of the Common Bristlenose (Ancistrus cf. cirrhosus). I would assume that the female was an albino Common Bristlenose and that the fry are normally coloured (type) Bristlenoses.

I don't know about the red "gene" (allele), but the albino allele is definitely recessive, so any fry would be wild type coloured.
