Those are the perfect plant with which to have this happen. (Sorry to hear about that, by the way. Sucks ass any way you cut it.)
The HC and HG do great emersed. Search "dry-start" on this board and in google and you'll see not only how you can save your plants, but have them grow faster than they would have in your CO2-enriched tank.
Fissidens are soldiers. Put them in a container like you have, keep it in the light and they'll be fine. (They, too, grow emersed, I believe. Double check that before trying the Fissidens dry-start, though.)
