Like in every level, the regular Clear Gem is present. To obtain this gem, a player must collect every box in the level. Also in The Eel Deal is the Green Gem. Obtaining the Green Gem is fairly complicated, because most players will have no idea where it is. When Crash makes it to a part where he can go left or right, pick right, and go through the Nitro Box area. Keep walking forward until Crash makes it to a dead end. Walk through the dead end, and Crash walks through the wall. Continue through the path and the Green Gem will be waiting to be obtained.
