Creaking aquarium

Hi

Just set up new fluval roma 125 and it's cabinet about 2 weeks ago and noticed a creaking sound every now and then last night.

I've been really paranoid and checked out the cabinet this morning as I am 100% sure it is that and noticed this cam lock has shifted from its place. This is at the top of the right "leg" board of the cabinet.

I called fluval and they guy on the phone said its just the tank settling and due to the weight of the water being distubuted over such a large amount of space it would be nothing to worry about... But I'm still pretty scared of an explosion as I live in a flat 😂

Has anyone else's moved like this as the tank "settled in"?

Really worried!! Thanks!

The way I see it, if it wasn't important, then why did the manufacturer put it there?
