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?

I can send you more after the new year if mine survive my winter break... I have an erio they won't touch! Nothing eats it because it smells bad :P

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.
