Barbs and danios make excellent tank mates for crayfish. If you have 2, I strongly suggest that you get a 55.

Filtration does not determine bioload.

Blood parrots are too large for your tank.

You're not wrong, but it's still not big enough.

Tetras will be eaten, in my experience. The parrots probably won't make it to outgrowing the tank because of the crayfish - you're right.
