Just an update: when I set it to copy, it works fine as expected.

So I guess the only alternatives alternatives I have are:
- link the file, but as unzipped fastq
- copy the file (which copies the unzipped data to galaxy)

Would be nice to have a way of working with gzipped fastq files, since
most tools now work with them routinely. I'm probably missing something
