In a way...
There should be something in there with Calcium in there (like a bottlecap) so that the leo can lick it up whenever it wants.
And my leos usually eat about 10 mealworms a night. I know that each leo is different, but I've never had any that young eat less than 20 prey items a week. My adult males however will eat a little less than 20 a week in winter tho.
Now...you put leaves in the tank? Please tell me that you didn't just grab the leaves and the limb from outside. That's a major no-no because the flora outside is WAY different from what a leo should have. Not only that, but there's icky bugs and bacteria on those.
You should ask your dad where he got his info from. It seems like pretty good advice to me. Maybe he's got his own copy of a leopard gecko care book stashed away somewhere...
