Fiji airways has sub $4000 for business class to the US. The agent on the phone told me the flights do not have qantas codeshare.

When you book, the flight number shown on the website is what will be on your ticket so if the Fiji website has no options for QF numbers, you'll get the lower status credit haul.

All Fiji Airways flights from Australia to Fiji and then Fiji to the US have a QF codeshare which can only be booked by QF.

No SC even with QF code. You go book with CX (via Hong Kong), JL (via Tokyo) or QR (via Doha).

No clue what btaus means by "No SC even with QF code".
Flights =marketed= as QF will earn QF points and status credits as if these were proper QF flights.
Note that Qantas showing codeshare is available for the same flight is NOT enough.
You must make sure that QF, not Fiji Air flight code is =on your booking=.
Note that if you buy your ticket from Fiji Airways, it will be marketed by Fiji and you not get any Status Credits.
You can also try booking two separate itineraries through Qantas - from Australia to Fiji and from Fiji to the US (both with QF flight numbers on your booking). That may be significantly cheaper, although you are running the risk of not making the connnection in Fiji. Also try booking through third-party websites, such as Expedia.
You can earn QF status credits and points on flights operated and marketed by FJ. Here are the earn rates for the flights the OP is talking about.
Brisbane to Nadi - 40 Status Credits and 2250 points
Nadi to LAX - 140 Status Credits and 7125 points

So the Nan-Lax sector on Fiji operated services earns 140 SC, the same as QF codeshare flights??
