    Unless you live near the equator (and the trees there do not look equatorial) neither, they're not very temperature variation tolerant. You're better off having a bunch of men with guns instead. The moat will slow up attackers, then you can shoot them.

    Maybe nowadays autonomous underwater vehicles could be a good choice though.

    Assuming your moat is in a warm enough region for either, you don't need to worry about a piranha getting hungry and going for a walk to eat one of your sheep/chickens/small children in the village.
    Plus I'm pretty sure people in the Amazon catch and eat Piranha fairly often, if your moat has a sustainable population of them, or even better, if it's literally part of the Amazon River, your moat is now pulling double duty as a food source and defensive measure.

          If they are in a position to cut holes in the fence around my moat they have probably completed their circumvallation and contravallation. Thus they are now trapped inside of walls of their own making with my roided up rape gators. Old crocs and gators can get such thick hides that rifle rounds can't penetrate them.

    Going to give a genuine and autistic response.

    I’d go with alligators. Having spent my whole life in a southern bayou ecosystem, I know very well how massively big, fast and scary alligators are. They can be as still as a statue, and in a second can be charging at you faster than you can even react. Their jaws are too powerful for most other animals, including humans to escape from. Once you’re in their teeth and they start their death roll, your bones will be broken and you’ll be ripped apart and drowned. Unlike with piranhas, body armor will most likely not help you when facing an alligator because of their jaw strength. There’s a reason alligators and crocodiles have been around for so long, they’re true apex predators.

      Having spent my whole life in a southern Florida ecosystem, alligators aren't nearly aggressive enough. Since 1948, 30 people have been killed by gators here. Fricking 30. That's practically zero. They don't even want to frick with people and swim away. You'd have to be actively harassing one, or caught a homie on a hungry day. People raft and float on inner tubes in alligator infested water, and all FL water is alligator infested, all over the state and nothing happens.

      Even crocs don't really frick with people. There was like 2 recorded bites here ever. Now sure if we're talking about how gnarly they CAN be once they decide to attack, they're vicious. But WILL they attack? Likely not. Will they deter morons who think they're swimming killing machines? Maybe.

        so could chemicals be added to the water, preferably at a moments notice, to cause the gators to go into a frenzy? Maybe the scent of a favored prey or mating season pheromones?

    Piranha aren’t actually dangerous, and to keep a number of alligators or crocodiles sufficient to deter intruders from cannibilizing each other they’d need to be so well fed that they wouldn’t be aggressive to humans.

    Best thing to fill your most with would underwater concertina water and some sewage. If it HAS to be animals then I’d go with a herd of hippos. Amphibious, fast, aggressive, and could basically feed themselves. They’d just be huge, hyper aggressive, amphibious cows.

    isn't that one of those aesthetic moats that offers no real protection? Made just for looks. Because the building is actually a lot younger than it seems and was designed as some rich toss-pots palace home?

    Like, if you would undermine and pierce that outer moat-wall (bottom of the picture) with sappers, the whole moat would empty itself and render the whole water obsticle useless.

      Most castles weren't supposed to hold back a determined attacked forever, they were designed to make it as difficult as possible so the enemy doesn't bother in the first place, or is delayed long enough for relief forces to arrive. As long as you are safe from a quick and easy storming by the enemy the castle is doing its job. A lot of sieges ended simply because the attacker couldn't sustain a siege camp and had to frick off.

    Piranha gets their reputation from whenever Roosevelt visited some jungle, the natives wanted to impress him so they starved them for weeks, and then put a cow in the water. The piranhas ate it clean, and that's the experience Roosevelt took back home.

    They're still dangerous, but not like Hollywood would like you to belive, and it's just some types of piranha anyway.

    In our modern era, you're better off electrifying the water, it's not as cool but far more functional.
