Question Pleco Cross Breeding?

I have a 30 gallon long tank that has a female Albino SF BN pleco and a Male L144 SF BN pleco.
Last night I saw them both together in a cave getting "cozy".
If they did breed, will I get a certain percentage of L144's and a certain percentage of Albinos or just a morph of the 2??

Bwhiskered is a name known to all

With 2 unrelated strains you should get all browns. However many of the 144's carry a recessive albino gene and therefore a few albinos are possible. The blue eyed 144's will not show up until you breed a pair of the siblings together or a female back to the male 144.

Great! Thanks Charlie!
The female is back out of the cave today, but the male is staying in.
Not sure if he's protecting some eggs now?
LOL!! Maybe I'll just private message you any further questions from now on.
