The lightest hidden-bottom tetraquarks in the dynamical diquark model fill an S-wave multiplet consisting of 12 isomultiplets. We predict their masses and dominant bottomonium decay channels using a simple three-parameter Hamiltonian that captures the core fine-structure features of the model, including isospin dependence. The only experimental inputs needed are the corresponding observables for Zb(10610) and Zb(10650). The mass of Xb, the bottom analogue to X(3872), is highly constrained in this scheme. In addition, using lattice-calculated potentials we predict the location of the center of mass of the P-wave multiplet and find that Y(10860) fits well but the newly discovered Y(10750) does not, more plausibly being a D-wave bottomonium state. Using similar methods, we also examine the lowest S-wave multiplet of six cc¯ss¯ states, assuming as in earlier work that X(3915) and Y(4140) are members, and predict the masses and dominant charmonium decay modes of the other states. We again use lattice potentials to compute the centers of mass of higher multiplets and find them to be compatible with the masses of Y(4626) (1P) and X(4700) (2S), respectively.
