Killed off most of my plants

Kubie

I was upgrading my 40g to a 55g and had to put the plants into a holding bin with water while I upgraded the stand and setup the tank. It was 6 days. The fish survived being crammed into a 10g tank. The plants i put in a 2 gallon bin with a large does of excel for good measure. There was some overhead light too.

my plants were many anubus, 2 Amazon swords, about 14 spiral vals, and good about or sag grass.

everything is melting. I lost all the vals about 5 days after replanting (turned to green dust). Sag grass leaves are becoming clear. Anubus looks like they were eat. And one sword does has a red leaf because I’ve been running CO2 trying to save my plants.
Any suggestions?
I also put root tabs under the swords.

If the roots are strong they will come back eventually. Isn’t excel an algicide? I’ve heard that vals are especially sensitive.
