Thanks that worked. I was thrown off by the word concatenate, which I mistakenly thought
would join reads together (reads remain separate), and by the absence of the word merge,
which is used when referring to combining two BAM datasets together in Galaxy. It seems to
me that the tool to combine BAM datasets, "Merge Bam Files", and the tool to
combine FASTQ datasets, "Concatenate datasets" work the same but
"Concatenate datasets" works on any type of dataset.

If you just want to conacatenate the fastq files (I assume that is what you mean) you can
do that using the text manipulation tools: concatenate datasets tail-to-head.
