Rainwater VS Tapwater?

Okay, It's been raining so much lately and as I am looking at buying another betta, I was wondering if rainwater could be provided as a suitable tank water? I know you'd still have to put in the water condition and such, but would the fish find any benefit?

I wouldn't if you're in the city. Consider pollution.

Yeah, most rain and snow is so heavily polluted, anywhere now, not just in the city, that its not good for us, until its been highly filtered, etc, I wouldnt use it for fish. Unless you do have that all set-up for your own use.
