I don't really know but do a water check and see if your parameters are OK. Is he eating?

Don't fw dip. It doesn't do anything IMO. Also, mandarins have a special slime coat, that dip would probably kill him. He could of been stung by the nem which might of caused the large swelling on his throat. Is he still pecking at rocks trying to eat?

If he's eating fine and all your parameters are fine I'd just give him time. Good luck!
