My tree got a bunch of gnats so I repotted it thinking maybe I had root rot. It didn't look like the roots had a rot issue when I repotted. Now the leaves are slowly yellowing and falling off but no more gnats. The ones that look sickest have little brown dots. Any idea how I save my tree? First picture is a fallen leaf. Second is a healthy one and third is the whole tree. I've grown it from a sapling. It's 2.5 years old.

When you transplanted into a larger container you raised the water volume and the root are setting in water. The plant needs more dry time now that you added more soil. If you put any new soil on the old soil, remove it to help the root ball dry quicker. Your original problem before transplanting was over watering.
