Crypt melting help


I just got my first pressurized co2 and started injecting into my 55g two weeks ago and I noticed last night my crypts are melting (wendtii, undulatus, crispatula var. Balansae). I know this is normal and they will most likely come back but the problem is I was planning on tearing the tank down this weekend and moving all the plants into my 90g upstairs but I'm worried that the move might be too much change for them right now, should I suspend co2 for now??

How much did you inject into the water?
You might be pushing too much co2.

Damage is already done to the plants either way.
You can continue co2 or move the rhizomes to your upstairs tank.

Would suggest dose of fertilizer and increase photoperiod for rhizomes to heal.

The drop checker is a light yellow green but I'm not sure the solution is actually 4dkh, I'm running about 3bps and my photoperiod is 8 hours and I fertilize via EI
