Hi James,

The FASTX fastq to fasta conversion tool requires your input to be in one of 
the "fastqsanger,fastqsolexa,fastqillumina" datatypes. Please note that this 
does not include the base "fastq" datatype. Can you double check the datatype 
assigned to your datasets?

Alternatively, there is also another FASTQ to FASTA converter available which 
does not have this restriction:

Thanks for using Galaxy,

Dan
