Does the size of the Light matter?.
Will 2% UVB light be good enought for a baby RES?..or will it be better to get one with 5 or 8%?..
Will a 15 inch light be enough for a 20 gallon tank?..Its all I can afford..

5% is recommended and it should be installed at a distance of approximate 8-12 inches above the basking area. I would go with whatever fits the length of the tank.
