If you are determined to not plan on full capacity l would use a quality breaker sized to the maximum current of the smallest current carrying devise minus 25%.
If it trips you can rest it and lower your usage. That Daly 200 amp has tinned copper with 200 deg c. Insulation it’s #2 awg and only a few inch’s long and it’s the minimum they they would use.

Remember this…
A BMS does NOT limit amperage from the battery… it is rated to handle a specific amperage for a specific duration…

It will happily dish out as many amps as the load demands… and then fail to function, usually resulting in full amperage continuing to flow…

Design the LOADS to stay under the BMS rating.
