5 tap HID lighting

Hello all

I looking to build a custom hood with MH lighting and CF tubes for Actinics. I see a lot of ballasts online that say they are ( 5 tap ) ballasts.What does that mean??? Each bulb needs it own ballast??
I want to light a 30 gallon long. what would rec. for wattage? Thanks
