Plants Melting

I pulled plants out of my tank for about 7 days while I moved tank around for new floors to be installed in the house, plants were in holding tank, with no light during this time, no ferts so on.

Now that plants are back in main tank, they are looking really bad, appears they have started to melt.

Should i just remove the dead part of the plant and hope new will grow back? The roots are in good shape. This is mostly on dwarf sag and full size sag.

I would cut the roots to ~1", peel-off outside leaves and replant. GL.
