Importing fastq files in Qiime2-2020.11

Hi, everyone

Im trying to import this results from fungal sequences

and I want to know... What kind of the importing data describe in the link below use? Importing data — QIIME 2 2020.2.0 documentation

Per instance I was trying with
qiime tools import
--type 'SampleData[PairedEndSequencesWithQuality]'
--input-path Fungal
--input-format CasavaOneEightSingleLanePerSampleDirFmt
--output-path demux-paired-end.qza

but this error appear

There was a problem importing Fungal:

Fungal/A1_AGGTCAGATA-CTACAAGATA_L001_R1_001.fastq.gz is not a(n) FastqGzFormat file:

File is uncompressed.

Thanks for your help

Hello and welcome to :qiime2:

QIIME 2 processes files in compressed format (suffix fastq.gz) to save the place on the hard drive. You need to gzip your reading files and then they will be ready to use.
To compress all FASTQ files in the directory use following command:

gzip [path/to/datafolder]/*.fastq
