Yes, manufactured in may 2013
I would allow it to be used during may 2018, but not in June 2018 - not everyone would and would count it as due in may

And will then be valid for 5 years from when you get it tested

Also on the bottle you should have a final/expiry date which is by default 15 years after manufacture, eg may 2028

Apparently new bottles with a UNISO certification don't have a limited life span so won't have a expiry date, "All First Strike Hero tanks feature UNISO certification. This is the highest standard in paintball and covers both DOT and TC certification. These tanks can be used anywhere in the world and are good for a lifetime. Unlike most DOT/TC tanks that only have a lifespan of 15 years while needing to be hydro tested after every 5, the FS Hero tanks are good for a lifetime. Simply re-hydro after every 5 years and you will never need a new tank again! " taken from just paintball.

Cool can anyone recommend a good place to get it tested?
Preferably HPAC as they are the Paintball air specialists and are at many events, so you could drop off with Trevor & pick up at a later event
Your local site may be able to arrange handover for you

Otherwise check the IDEST members list and you should find somewhere local:
