    I am unaware of any distro that applies the first three elements (or something similar) that would NOT be considered bloated. Therefore I'll abstain from suggesting any. Instead, I suggest to configure it yourself by simply installing fish, bat and fzf; after which they are configured to work as desired. This can be applied on most distros. For whatever it's worth, if you're lazy like me, perhaps consider the excellently maintained ZSH Quickstart Kit. It utilized Zsh instead of Fish, but perhaps it might be to your liking.
