As El_Toro mentioned, enclosure size is key here. Your Uro cannot wait until summer for a larger enclosure. 20L will quickly lead to severe health problems.

Bulbs will vary based on size and type of enclosure. My suggestion is check criagslist in your area for a used 75 gallon fish tank (48"x18"x18" can usually be found for around $100.

As for UVB, MegaRay bulbs produce heat and UV, as do T-Rex MVB's. They are both quality bulbs. For heating the rest of the tank, that will take some moving and changing of various wattage bulbs. Unfortunately you just have to experiment.
