Got any advice on how to keep ludwigia inclinata from shedding it's leaves near the bottom of the stem? Does it require really high light?

as far as downoi they would munch on dead leaves
They absolutely love to eat tonina - it is by far their favorite - shame really as I would love to keep tonina/erio/styro only species in here.

Inclinata is a sensitive one - the lower leaves need to get light. Seems to be fairly sensitive to micros and K - loses leaves really easy if these aren't happy.
