Most likely not. Depends how big the tank is and if there are a lot of hiding spots

I orderwe some cherry barbs and they are way smaller than I expected. Will my turquoise rainbowfish or angelfish or mollies and platies kill them.
You’re definitely fine. Those are at least an inch so the only fish that would probably eat them are like 6 inch cichlids IMO. Turquoise Rainbows, despite being big, have very narrow throats (learned from Steenfott Aquatics) so you’re also fine there. I would just watch them if you’re worried.

Should be fine, most barbs can hold their own. Live-bearers definitely aren't a concern. Even an adult rainbow would struggle to eat those.

As mentioned above, plants/wood, hiding spaces etc... will help if you're worried.
