Pet food scheduler - every other day?

Hi Everyone - loving ActionTiles and have a tablet permanently mounted in the kitchen for monitoring, weather and lighting scene control.  We have a turtle that gets fed once every 2 days - but it's easy to forget which day she was fed and difficult to know if someone else fed her already.   

I was thinking ActionTiles could help here.  Two possible designs;

1.  A tile that lights up at a pre-programmed time every other day.  Pressing the tile would turn it off.  Smartthings can almost do this as a routine (turn on a virtual switch at a certain time).  The limitation is that it can't do "every other day" only specific days of the week).  

2.  A calendar view that highlights every other day with a way to check off the highlighted days somehow.   

Does anyone have an idea on how to implement either option?  


webCoRE can do every other day.  Not sure how you’d do the calendar.  You could always setup a calendar in Google, iCloud, etc. and schedule the feedings as an event then add that calendar to dakboard.
