Who's the mamma?

7 weeks ago I transferred a calico male BNP and his breeding log to a new (cycled)175g tank. I didn't realize he had eggs in there, or I would have waited. I was moving him to STOP him continually breeding. But I am still getting tiny BNP fry- and they look just like all the others have.
His tank mates are 2 bumblebee gobies, 9 kuhli loaches, 1 small female peppermint BNP and a mature pair of orange spot BNP.
My question is this:
Can those fry be from eggs that were transferred with the cave 7 weeks ago?

It takes 2 weeks for BNP fry to loss their egg sacks. So maybe. Ancistrus can and will cross breed. If there are females with the male. It could breeding with it.
I have put BNs together and had eggs in less then 48 hours and others never breed.

Argh! I don't want him creating little hybrids!!! I wanted him to breed with my beautiful long finned calico, but when she reached sexual maturity, the albino (who was a rampant breeder and had spawned all the previous fry) killed her
I haven't seen the female orange spot or the female peppermint anywhere near his cave. The orange spot male has been fanning away in his cave for 7 weeks now. Maybe they are his fry? But I would have thought they'd be darker than the fry I've had from my calico.
