Angry Plant leaves turning brown

I might have mess up my plants. I have a sword plant and various other plants. The sword has been doing just fine for over 2 years. Monday 12-23 2013 I changed the water in my tank. It is a 29 gal and changed about 6 gal of it. I used the chloride rid and such. I might have over filled the tank. I put in Florish and Florish xl. Lighting is florescent . Today the leaves are turning brown on the sword plant. Not all the way brown you can see green in the stems and veins. I filled the tank up almost to the top. Which I never do tip Monday. I took out some water. Will the plants turn green again or did I kill it. PH is good.

Pictures would help.

Did they turn brown because of chlorine or excel, or you aren't sure why?

Plant leaves that are damaged will not heal, but new leaves will be healthy if conditions return to normal.
