T5 question?

Everything else being equal (reflectors, height above water, etc), do T5s give more lumens per watt than NO flourescents ? and compacts? Assuming I have 3 watts per gallon of NOF, how many watts would I need in T5s?
Previous 45 gal reef tank.
Current 10 gal FW, moderately planted community tank, HOB filter, 2x15 watt CF at 6500 K, soft water, pH 7, no CO2,...cardinal tetras, glass tetras.
