Problem regarding Fastq sequence identifier

I am having problem while importing my FASTQ files in qiime2. I am not sure of sequence identifier type in my FASTQ file which has to be given as input in
–type option while importing. I am using the below command for importing-

qiime tools import
–output-path sequences.qza

Using the “–show-importable-formats” utility I got to know that qiime2 supports many importable formats (>50) but how to know what is the format of my FASTQ file ?

Welcome to the forum, @Siddharth_Singh!
There are lots of different ways to format sequence data, so imports can be tricky at first. Have you checked out the importing tutorial?
