What the difference in the Norse mythology between Dökkálfar or Svartálfar?
I know they live in different realms but I'm wondering what the difference is.

That may depend a lot on who you ask.

Here is a video about the words used for both in Old Norse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21h8B8sEkQg

As for references to them in the lore, I have found little that would give you a clear understanding of how they are different.

It was always my understanding that they were like counterparts in their respective realms, but it isn't really my specialty.
