Dude, you can catch way more flies with honey than vinegar. Nobody can tell you if he's going to die. How does he act, that's the biggest clue you've got going to find out. If he swims around, eats and poops fine, then he's probably not going to die from the bent tail. You could try posting a picture so people can see what it looks like.
