UVB positioning

Hi there!
I got the 24” Reptisun 10.0 T5 in my 4x2x2 enclosure. I’m aware that a longer size is recommended but also know this will be fine. How is the position of it? It’s 14 inches from the Hide. Obviously much closer to the top of the branch....
Is Spike too close to the UVB? (He’s laying on it in the pic- which is 8in from the light)
And how is it in relation to his basking spot?
Does the UVB Fixture need to be moved more to the right? Or Higher or lower from the top?
Thank you!

As long as the distance is 12-15 inches from the basking spot --- 8 inches is pretty close and I dont think he will go that close to it and if he does hes not gonna stay long -- the hide would be a good basking spot for him --- does he sit on it? And the position looks fine -- hes gonna go to the light he needs --

He doesn't spend much time on that hide. Always on his hammock or just below it on the bricks. Thanks for responding so quickly! Besides the vet visit next week, I think I (finally!) have everything figured out. :)

What is the distance from his main basking spot? Or the spot he spends the majority of his time? That is the distance that should be around 12 inches.

The 22 inch is the perfect size for 4x2x2 IMO.
