This is a two gene pair problem. The hypo gene is dominant to its normal counterpart. The albino gene is recessive to its normal counterpart.

female hypo het albino:
gene pair 1 = 1 hypo gene and 1 normal gene
gene pair 2 = 1 albino gene (probably Kahl albino) and 1 normal gene

male sunglow (sunglow is a combination of hypo and albino):
gene pair 1 = 1 hypo gene and 1 normal gene
gene pair 2 = 2 albino genes (probably Kahl albino)

By the way, this type of mating is covered in

expected offspring:
3/8 sunglow (33% probability homozygous hypo)
1/8 albino
3/8 hypo het albino (33% probability homozygous hypo)
1/8 normal looking het albino
Actual offspring may vary from the proportion of expected offspring simply from the luck of the draw.
